Re: [PoetryAssessor] The Poetry Assessor

Poetry Assesor, this is fascinating. I used this poem by myself and comic book author Marv Wolfman. Line breaks are his, everything is his except the extraction. It scored .740567.
The poem is one that I found in a Superman Comic. I found the writing so bad that it, in Kenneth Koch's words, "Sounds like an avant garde poem. Like Mary McKintrik Ros. I hope to capture this voice some day.

Beneath the brackish waters of the Icy Atlantic

[I deleted the body of the poem to comply with policies, which is unfortunate. Marv Wolfman is one of the most gifted inadvertent poets I've ever read.
